I have not tried it yet but I have read enough posts here to know that it does make a huge difference. Plus, you already spent the $35 on the fitting so why not spend the 15 minutest o put it in?

All you'll need is a plug.

I tried w/o Y-pipe first and was really disappointed. Y-pipe made a huge difference in my setup.

Not specifically for the MC, but associated. IMO, newer F150's suck for backup visibility, especially with tinted front door windows. I added V-LEDS LED plate and reverse lamps. No problem backing up to the trailer now!

Just ordered a reman motor for my 88 TriStar from FirsMate Marine. They undercut Jasper by quite a few bucks and no core charge on the Ford motor!

Hey Bouy, how many hours did you get out of the original? What was the problem?

Jasper is never the cheap option.

I vacuumed the carpet, finished the 3rd coat of wax, and started cleaning the vinyl with TA. I didn't very far on the vinyl....kept having to get out of the boat to due to defective beer cans

Tonight's goal: finish the vinyl, apply 303, and load her up for the weekend!

Took bucket outside loaded up with microfiber towels, rags, Babes Seat Soap, 303 protectant, Adams Fine Machine Polish, Mequires Premium Boat Wax and placed next to Porter Cable 7424XP, vacuum, refurbished prop, new Fly High ballast bags, and Star Gazer Wake Edition user manual, and got to work.

Son and I finished 5 hours later. Boat and trailer waxed, prop installed, vinyl and bimini cleaned and protected, carpet vacuumed, PP manual read. Put everything away. Sat down with son and drank beverages with cheeseburgers and fries from greasy drive-in restaurant

Forgot camera.

A nice job to have completed. A nice way to spend time with son.

Now, if the weather would cooperate. Getting a bit stir crazy in Iowa.

Sounds like a great day Larue... got a smart phone... you know the rules on this thread - will let ya slide on this one...

We got the same crap weather in Illinois... the solution is going to be double up on sets when the weather breaks... so I personally expect to be more sore after this season
